Joss Whedon is currently shooting the pilot episode of his highly anticipated S.H.I.E.L.D. series but on top of that it's been revealed that he's already working on scripts for future episodes. ABC president Paul Lee recently talked about the series, and basically explains how awesome it's going to be.
According to TV Line the series has been put on the fast track and will be ready for review “a lot earlier than others.” He went on to say that the script is “great” with “a lot of funny male/female relationships” as well as “a lot of action,” and feels it could be a highly co-viewed show, which means both kids and adults will enjoy watching it.
A few months ago Lee said the script was "very Joss." When asked to clarify what that meant he said, “You know how Joss is so high/low? How he’s able to be intense and epic and suddenly funny/silly? He’s got that ability to be super-entertaining.”
He went on to say that “Joss is very engaged and already working on scripts” and said that if the show was picked up it could air any day at any time slot because “Marvel has the ability to bring the whole family.”
Clark Gregg will be back as Agent Coulson, then there's Ming-Na as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grant, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons, and Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz.
The story will revolve around the activities of the top-secret S.H.I.E.L.D. espionage organization featured throughout the Marvel films. We'll most likely get to see the first episode of S.H.I.E.L.D. this fall.
